A day in Frankfurt

It isn't really "fair" to Frankfurt since I haven't written anything about it considering I spent almost two months there last year and I'm going to be there again soon. So here it goes...

If you have only one day in Frankfurt, you must visit Römer. It's a small square with traditional old houses in German style, near to the river Main and the city's biggest shopping center.

The sky on that Sunday was absolutely beautiful although it had been cloudy for the whole week. That saved me a lot of post-processing actually ;). Below is the statue at the Fountain of Justice in the center of the square, one of many tourist attractions here.

It was a Sunday afternoon and there was a group of Christians praying at the square. They prayed in English with banners in German, but they were all Korean. I wasn't sure why.

Late afternoon, I left the square to go on a boat cruise along the river Main, towards Offenbach. Honestly, the scene was not that fantastic, but enjoying German beer, the cool breeze and the warm summer sun was quite worthwhile.

I particularly like this shot. When the boat almost passed the building, I was kind of waiting for something catchy as it didn't seem right to shoot the building alone. Then the two ladies suddenly looked to the right in one direction and that was it. The composition was complete.

These kids sat in front of me during the cruise. The boy seemed to be moody, which you don't often see on kids' face.

Well, I have to pack my stuffs now. I have tried to delay this task all these days... More blogs about Frankfurt at night will come later.
